The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed has today promise Nigerians that the ongoing crisis between the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami and the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, is under investigation by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He revealed that the intervention of Mr. President was to proffer solutions and chart a way forward between the two warring parties in Nigeria.
Lai Muhammad told Channels Television that there are divergent views between the AGF and the EFCC chairman and the appropriate authorities will look into it. “The fact that the AGF and the EFCC chairman do not see eye to eye on the methods or the approach does not mean that both of them do not believe in the ultimate which is that corruption must be addressed.
If they disagree on approach, then the president will look into the matter and make his pronouncement. He will ask why the AGF is taking such a position and why the EFCC chairman is taking another position.
This, to me, is a purely administrative matter and if it is not, Mr. President will take appropriate action. The President is aware and is investigating it. He is the employer of both of them,” he said.
